This is more humorous than a brag, but this morning, ds was in a negative mood, and he said, "This is going to be a terrible day. I just know it." I told him that I firmly believe you shouldn't say negative things like that out loud because it makes them more real and they are more likely to come true. He didn't miss a beat and replied, "Today is my birthday! I can't wait for my party!" LOL (It's not even close to his bday!)
